Porn Star Tweet

February 22, 2013 -- Las Vegas, NV -- On February 22, 2009 the social media revolution finally reached the adult entertainment business in the form of the launch of PornStarTweet.com.  Upon opening, the website followed 17 Porn Stars including Stoya, Jenna Haze, Devon Lee and a handful of others -- today the social media aggregator follows nearly 1,700 real life Porn Stars; plus operates 10 other niche sites focused on various different sectors of adult entertainment including Gay, BBW, Tranny, ALT, Cam Girls; as well as a thriving mainstream networks focused on sports, music, celebrities, politicians and entertainment.

"What started as a marketing gimmick 4 years ago has turned into a full fledged business", said Pete Housley Founder and CEO.    " I look back over the past four years, it's really humbling to recall all of the amazing support we've received from stars, sponsors, media and most of all fans around the world."

The Naughty Tweet Network, of which PornStarTweet.com is the anchor site, boasts over 400,000 followers on Social Media and tens of thousands of clicks daily to its network of websites.  Both Porn Star Tweet and the network as a whole have seen media attention from both the adult and mainstream worlds since their inception. Pete Housley has spoken on numerous adult industry and mainstream panels about Social Media; and the company owes much of its success to a strong consulting team.

For the third year in a row Porn Star Tweet will sponsor the forthcoming series of Exxxotica Expo (http://exxxoticaexpo.com) shows starting with the April show in Atlantic City, the largest event in the USA dedicated to love and sex.

"Being 'social' is more than just sending out Tweets and posting on your Facebook", said TJ Little, COO.  "What's made us different is we get out from behind the keyboard to throw epic parties, sponsor consumer expos and truly participate in the industry."

The company recently celebrated a  major milestone with their annual coverage of the 2013 AVN Awards Red Carpet. A contingent of the team lead by Ash Hollywood and sponsored by mainstream app Highlight Cam provided live social media coverage with photos and videos to more than 60 Million views around the world; a sharp increase over their 2012 coverage.

"Social Media changes every day", said Denise Kraft, Director of New Business Development.  "We are constantly looking at the next new thing and it shows in the options we can bring to the table to our consulting and advertising clients as well as our sponsors.  We've been able to work with some of the biggest companies in the adult business over the last four years and we continue to grow and extend our services portfolio."

Sponsors and advertisers are at the core of the Naughty Tweet Network who offers unique access to high percentage of mainstream users through Social Media attracting and retaining a new type of consumer who typically is unfamiliar with sources of free content like tube sites.

The 2013 AVN Nomination are out! [source]

The collective breath the adult entertainment industry has been holding while it anticipates the announcement of the nominees for the AVN Awards can be exhaled. The highly sought-after list of nominees for the 2013 AVN Awards has arrived.

Download the complete list of nominees by clicking here.

A committee of 10 AVN critics spent close to a month and a half compiling nominations in over 130 categories recognizing companies, talent, technicians and creative professionals across the spectrum of the adult entertainment industry.

Several new categories were created to reflect the ever-evolving market trends of the business; these include Best Star Showcase (a movie centered around one female performer by both incorporating her name into its title and featuring her in all of its sex scenes), Best Romance Release (a title with a romance theme/storyline marketed specifically toward women or couples and/or released under a Romance or Couples-Themed line) and Best Transsexual Sex Scene.

Additionally, a number of formerly familiar categories have been reintroduced to the awards as the market has expanded accordingly. Back for 2013 are Best New Production Company and Best Continuing Series (which was previously known as Best All-Sex/Vignette Series.)

Finishing up the housekeeping, Best Feature has been renamed Best Drama in order to properly complement Best Comedy, and Best All-Sex Release – Mixed Format has been retitled Best Wall-to-Wall Release for those releases that mix scene genres between gonzo, vignette and all-sex.

“Everybody on our nominations committee has literally poured their blood, sweat and tears into producing this list over the past six or so weeks, and I can honestly say that in my almost decade at AVN, I don’t think we’ve ever done a more meticulous and thorough job,” AVN Senior Editor Peter Warren said. “I am very pleased with the nominees we’ve come up with, and wish them all a stupendous weekend basking in the glow of being recognized.”

AVN Managing Editor Steve Javors echoed his colleague’s comments.

“I’m really proud of the work the nominations committee did,” he said. “The 30th anniversary of the most important night in adult entertainment is something we all took seriously, and being an AVN award nominee is a big point of pride. Rightfully so. Our nominees should be congratulated and recognized for a job well done. On behalf of everyone at AVN, we appreciate all your contributions to the world of adult entertainment.”

The announcement of those individuals elected to the AVN Hall of Fame will be made in the coming days.

AVN Media Network recently announced the 2013 Award Show hosts—adult superstars Asa Akira and Jesse Jane, along with the show’s musical guest, hip-hop sensation Tyga.

A limited number of tickets to the gala awards are available for fans to purchase through AVNAwards.com. Industry members receive reserved seating. More information about reserved seating may be obtained by emailing Bonnie LeBlanc at tickets@avnawards.com. Studios or groups wishing to purchase a table at the show should also email LeBlanc.

With a stylish red carpet pre-show and lavish star-studded ceremony, AVN celebrates outstanding achievements in the world of adult entertainment. The AVN Awards is a must-attend, must-see event featuring the hottest stars from adult and mainstream pop culture.

WHY KAGNEY WHY??????????????????????????

Kagney Linn Karter

Kagney Linn Karter has always been one of the most beautiful girls in porn.  I thought that about her since the very first time I laid my eyes on her.  I can remember the first time I met her in person.  She was every bit as beautiful up close as she was on the pages of the magazines I’ve seen her in.

Whenever pictures come out about industry events, I always find myself looking to see what Kagney Linn Karter looks like that night.  I wasn’t however prepared for what I seen last night.

I am confused why pretty girls like this go out of their way to mutilate their looks in one way or another.  Belladonna recently pulled a Britney Spears and shaved her head completely.

Is it that they are so unhappy with their lot in life that they have to go out of their way to try and make themselves look so bad they secretly hope nobody would hire them?  I remember Janine once talking about that in regards to why she kept tatting up her once beautiful body and would eventually become completely unrecognizable.

For those of you who don’t remember, or are in to much shock seeing her hair like that at the avn awards show, here is what she used to look like.

Speaking of Janine, here is what Janine used to look like and how she looks now.

Pictures Live from 2012 AVN Awards

While there were some complaints about the AVN show being badly produced this year.  One attendee tweeted “The show was only two hours this year-still felt like 5 but with fewer cool montages. fail.”  But the one thing you can’t say is that @PornstarTweet didn’t own the hell out of tweeting pics live from the red carpet.    Thanks to them and a whole bunch of fun loving, tweeting porn stars, we have for you some images from the 2012 AVN awards show.  So enjoy!!

The combination will allow even the most casual Twitter user to feel like they have VIP access to the hottest awards show ever for a seamless, live experience to fans worldwide.

“The greatest thing about AVN is they’ve never been afraid to bleed the edge with technology”, said Pete Housley CEO of the Naughty Tweet Network. “Working with AVN over the past year we’ve harnessed some amazing new technology to showcase an award show like never before. Having the Twitter Correspondents adds a level of personality and intimacy and our three stars were chosen and stationed perfectly — they will be the eyes and ears of fans worldwide. Adult stars have millions of followers on Twitter, and we’re going to give them one helluva show!”

We are proud to announce them as our official Twitter correspondents, and we anticipate an amazing and interactive response.”

The AVN Awards’ Red Carpet is the fast-paced, star-studded precursor to the industry’s most prestigious and glamorous awards show. The event takes place Jan. 21, 2012 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Joint is a sleek and upscale, 4,000-seat showroom with the reputation as one of the most sophisticated and authentic venues in Las Vegas.

Dubbed “the Oscars of porn” by Entertainment Weekly, the AVN Awards is a must-attend, must-see event featuring the hottest stars from adult and mainstream pop culture.

The AVN Awards will take place after the annual Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE). AEE runs January 18 – 21, also in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. In 2012, AEE includes traditional exhibits, meeting rooms, exhibit suites, more networking events, more parties, more product demos and more educational components.

Coolio and 2 Live Crew to Party at the AVN Awards

The 2012 AVN Awards is pleased to announce that Coolio and 2 Live Crew will perform in The Joint immediately following the AVN Awards on Jan. 21 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Each artist will perform their own set and then join together for a special encore. The post-show concert ends at 2 a.m.

Coolio arrived on the hip-hop scene with his 1994 debut album It Takes a Thief on Tommy Boy Records. The album contained the single “Fantastic Voyage” which became Coolio’s breakout song. It peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of the biggest rap singles of the year. Overall the album was certified Platinum.

It was however his single, “Gangsta’s Paradise” off the Dangerous Minds soundtrack, that put Coolio into the stratosphere. The global hit reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and earned Coolio a Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance.

No rap group has stirred more controversy or provoked more heated debate than 2 Live Crew. The furor over the graphic sexual content of their X-rated party rhyme—specifically their 1989 album As Nasty as They Wanna Be—was a major catalyst in making rap music a flash point for controversy and an easily visible target for self-appointed moral guardians. Regardless of whether one enjoys their sense of humor, to focus only on the controversy ignores the 2 Live Crew’s musical contributions. They were responsible for popularizing the booming, hard-driving sound of Miami bass music, and they were the founding fathers of a populist, dance-oriented rap subgenre that relied on simple, explicit chants and up-tempo rump-shaking grooves, appropriately dubbed “booty rap.”

Tickets are available at AdultEntertainmentExpo.com for $50. Ticket holders for the 2012 AVN Awards can enjoy the concert for no additional charge.

All fan, trade and press attendees may go to AdultEntertainmentExpo.com for the 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), which will be held at its new home, The Hard Rock Hotel, in Las Vegas. AEE will showcase an incredible lineup of the biggest names the adult industry has to offer, the hottest adult stars from around the world, a robust trade seminar program, stage shows, musical performances, and a first look at the cutting-edge technology behind some of the most innovative sex toys and novelties on the market today, and in the future.

For the first time in its history, The Hard Rock Hotel will host all facets of the expo, as well as the 2012 AVN Awards Show. The festivities open on Wednesday, January 18 through Saturday, January 21, 2012.

One of the largest adult tradeshows in the world, AEE brings together an exciting and unique experience for everyone within the adult entertainment industry. AEE trade registration includes the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE), the industry’s leading B2B trade expo for pleasure products, the AEE Trade Show, and for the first time, the AEE Fan Fest, giving fans never-before-seen access to the industry and its participants.

In a first, AEE will be presenting over 12 official parties held throughout Las Vegas, where attendees of the expo have the opportunity to upgrade their tickets to attend these events.

Wednesday is restricted to trade attendees only, and special “trade only” hours on Friday and Saturday will restrict access to industry professionals and the media in order to permit exhibitors to make and build business and media contacts before fans are allowed into the Expo.

Trade registration provides badge holders access to all AEE and ANE seminars, the main exhibit hall during all show hours, and the AVN Novelty Expo. Special Fan Tickets are also now available at fall discount rates. The VIP Fan Package includes access to the Fan Fest featuring over 300 adult stars, separate VIP Entrance, dedicated registration area, AEE Show Directory, and a complimentary T-shirt for $100.

The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) is dramatically expanding its audience reach with the creation of a AVN-AEE Virtual Ticket allowing registrants to view and participate in the iconic Las Vegas event from the privacy of their own home. Wicked Pictures exclusive contract star, Jessica Drake and Mr.Skin.com founder Jim McBride will be VirtualCast hosts alongside popular Midwest radio personality ROVER.

The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo sets the stage for the 29th annual AVN Awards Show, which will be held Saturday, January 21, at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
